After I got back home, we found the bench enough to work. Putty knife in hand, Ryan got to work. After removing all the scale he could by scraping, Dad ran the wire brush on it for a while. After that, we braised the seat back together.
There are 2 spots of jagged rust on the edges... looking for suggestions here... I may be able to braise some metal back in. It's pretty thin tho.
Will post pics of repairs as they happen.
